With the first two seasons and movie being as successful as they were, the producer and cast behind Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba have opened up about their hopes for the anime's third season now in the works! The Entertainment District arc of the anime was just as well received as everything that had come before, and thus all eyes have been glued to the anime in order to figure out what as coming next. This includes even those who had been working on the anime's production so far, and they have been getting ready for the next major arc of Koyoharu Gotouge's original series.
Producer behind the series Yuma Takahashi and Tanjiro Kamado voice star Natsuki Hanae opened up about Demon Slayer's anime production when they took the stage during a special panel at Anime Expo earlier this Summer (of which ComicBook.com was in attendance). Not only did they reflect on how much had happened during the course of the first two seasons and feature film release, but they opened up about what they hope to see happen with the third season of the series kicking off the Swordsmith Village arc of the manga.
As Takahashi teased about Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village Arc, studio ufotable wants to put their best foot forward with the anime much like they have done with the previous releases. Teasing the same high octane action seen in those previous works, Takahashi teases that as Tanjiro continues to grow so will the story and presentation for it. As for Hanae, he's excited to see how Tanjiro will be growing as well and is especially looking forward to see two more of the Hashira in action with the coming arc as well. As they end their teases, they hope fans will enjoy what's coming our way.
Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village Arc currently does not have a set release window or date as of this writing, but as teased by the producer and star, the arc will see the Love Hashita, Mitsuri Kanroji, and the Mist Hashira, Muichiro Tokito, getting into the thick of the action as the fights and challenges grow more intense with the coming arcs. So there's going to be a lot to see, and what are you most excited to check out in Demon Slayer's next season? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!
